In the movie, Under the Tuscan Sun, the leading actress breaks down in tears when she tells her friend she’ll never find love again.
Her friend looks at her and explains that the way to find ladybugs is not to search for them in the grass.
Rather, you should lie down for a nap on the grass. When you awaken you’ll find yourself covered in ladybugs.
Sometimes the way to find your idea, or partner, or customer, or investor, is to stop looking.
Lie down and wait for the ladybugs to find you.
